Growing up in the small NSW town of Sawtell, Bonnie was primarily a board paddler and swimmer. Picking up a paddle at the age of 17, she was a late bloomer on the ski. Her first race on a ski was within the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Ironwoman trials 6 months later where she managed to grab a spot in the Professional series. Later this found her to be the youngest in the series for the following 3 years. Bonnie competed on the Ironwoman circuit for the next 8 years, as well as competing at State, Australian and World titles.


In that time highlights include:

- Multiple Australian Open board relay and swim team gold

- Female Australian Open Double Ski gold 2011

- 3rd Coolangatta Gold 2012 -2nd Kellogg’s Series round Coolum 2012

- State Open surf race gold 2011

 - Australian Open Surf Race bronze 2011

- World Board Rescue gold 2008 & 2012

 - Junior Australian team member

After a two-year layoff, Bonnie decided to focus on ski paddling, after struggling to fit in the training required for Ironwoman racing around work as a dietitian.

Since switching to ski paddling, highlights include:

- State Gold Open Female ski 2018

- Australian Bronze Open Female ski 2018

- Winner of Summer of Surf Female Ski series 2018

- Captaining QLD interstate team and winning female ski, taplin and mixed ski relay 2018

- 5th Molokai to Oahu Female Ocean ski 2018

- 7th ICF World Ocean Ski Championships 2019
